No Boxer Boxer
They're snug, but ride up
These were at first glance the perfect boxer short, however after wearing them for a few days I noticed they would continue to ride up and didn't feel so good. I have since returned the pair and got myself a few pairs of the long ones which are working out quite well.

Long version Great, Short are OK
I have been a Lululemon customer for a long time, but have never had their boxers. I recently tried out the No boxer boxer Short version. I bought 2 pairs and found it to be a love hate relationship right off the bat. The material they are made of is fantastic, and they have a decent amount of room for "the junk" while still being tight enough to keep everything in place. However I found the length is not exactly whats shown in picture, and they turned out to be shorter then I expected (I'm 6'1 for reference). I found they rode up a bit because the bottom elastic was not tight enough, thus they became far too short after wearing them for awhile, being almost booty short small.
So I had a problem, give up on Lulu boxers, or try the long ones. I decided to give Lulu a second chance and bought a pair of long version. These are far more better! I found them to be a really good length for those of us used to normal boxers. They are initially tight on the thigh, but loosen a bit during the day to become a perfect fit. You barely can tell they are there! They fit really well, a little low on the waist line but thats not a terrible thing. They are great for working out in as well, despite not being compression shorts. These are defiantly the model I would recommend to the taller gentleman.
Overall I am happy with the long pair I bought, and have since bought another pair. I regret terribly buying the short versions, because I now have 2 pair of boxers I wore twice and won't be wearing again. It unfortunate they are final sale, I mean I obviously understand why, but at 24$ a pair it's a waste of 48$+tax. I wish I could exchange these for more long pairs because those are fantastic.

Good stuff for your stuff
A lot of reviews on here (negatively) comparing these to the 'Game On' boxer. I'm new to Lulu, the 'No Boxer' being my 1st purchase. That said, I'm completely sold! I have under a dozen pair of Lulu underwear, all purchased in the last 6 weeks. I wear a small pretty much no matter who makes it (30" waist), and this is the most perfect fit for a small EVER. Plenty of room for the junk. As for the people claiming these underwear fall apart after a few washes, I suggest this: wash in cold, delicate setting, and HANG DRY! These are, after all, compression shorts, designed to dry quickly. Any heated tumble dryer will kill your synthetic fabrics!

not like the game on boxer
I purchased a few pair of these looking for a replacement to the Game On boxer. They are not a good replacement. The fit is awkward, they are constantly riding up my legs and the elastic has already started bunching up in less than a month. I love the Game On boxer but these aren't in the same ballpark. Don't make the same mistake I did.

I was sent this pair by Lulu to test it out. All I can say is I will never go back to normal boxers again. I am very active and am on my feet all day. The fabric feels like I have nothing on, but hugs my thighs but loose in the areas that need it. I will be buying these for forever.

I have the same problem with MARYMARY2, elastic band is getting curly around the joint. I have at least 5 of them and they are all doing the same thing :( otherwise they fit ok.

Not an appropriate replacement for the Game On
I, like many others, liked the Game On boxers because of their comfort and being multi purpose. I wore them as every day boxers and for running.
I never bought any of these new boxers for myself due to the terribly negative reviews but received 2 pairs for Christmas. My overall conclusion is that these are not appropriate replacements for the Game On. Disregarding the length and fit, the material is far different. These replacement boxers are only appropriate for every day wear, not for working out and/or running.
As for my take away from the boxers. I've worn them the past few days, I don't hate them like many others, They are fine for everyday wear. I'll still reach for my Game On boxers before these for all activities including every day wear, but all in all they aren't bad
Just a sidebar. While I didn't purchase the No Boxer Boxer myself, I did purchase the longer version. Personally, I find them to be completely uncomfortable. They rode up pretty much all day and sat really low on my waist. I far prefer the shorter version despite being a long boxer kind of guy.

2 different pairs that are a waist (pun intended)
3 weeks ago my boyfriend bought a pair of these "No boxer boxer's" he usually wears a medium, so thats what he picked out. No one at the store said a thing about how weird the sizing was. When he put them on they were kinda baggy in the but. He works for a Police Department so he needs something comfortable to wear under his uniform. He wore them a few times but they rode up. So trying to fix the problem I went back to the store and purchased a small. This time I was told by a male employee that the shorts ran a bit big, so I should probably size down. This time when he tried on the new pair you could see how tight they were in the legs. Now after maybe 2 washes both pairs are warping in the elastic band. We both love lulu's products, but these are not up to lulu's standards.

waist band does not hold up
Boxer fit great you just have to buy a new pair after every wash. The elastic on the waste band falls apart. The plastic pieces in the waste band begins to pop out after the first wash and continues to pop out worse under each wash. These plastic pieces then rub against you as well as loose the elasticity of the underwear. Not worthwhile unless you plan to only wear a couple times and then buy a new pair. If that is the case and money is no option then they are great out of the box. Should seem like an easy fix to correct such a big issue.
I bought 4 pairs and have had the issue with all 4 pairs so it is not simply a flaw with 1 pair rather a design flaw.

Not as bad as other reviewers say
Like most of the reviewers of this product, I was a die hard fan of the Game On's, and was really nervous when Lulu decided to change things up. But I took a chance on the No Boxer Boxer. Overall, I have found myself fairly happy with them. They are definitely different in fit and feel from the old boxers, as they sit higher on your thigh and are a tad bit tighter. But they have not ridden up on me they way they have for other reviewers. It could just be a different body type, but I have become fairly fond of these boxers, and they are definitely my favorite in the new line. I have found "the longer one" version of the No Boxer to be a bit tight on my thigh, and once you get used to these being a little shorter, they still ring true to lulu quality in terms of support and material.
I realize to say this may be a bit blasphemous, but the Game On's were not perfect. Every pair I have owned eventually developed holes in high friction areas. I believe that lulu did a better job reinforcing these areas in the No Boxer, which I am hoping will lead to a longer lasting product. Overall, these boxers are worthy of the lulu name, and I will not be jumping ship to go find a product that will never measure up.
